de Lesseps allegedly became suspicious of her husband after being shown a picture of him kissing another woman by de Lesseps' co-star and D'Agostino's ex-girlfriend, Ramona Singer.

After gathering evidence of the affairs for herself, the star reportedly confronted her husband in a restaurant in New York, leading to a physical altercation. During a recent stay at the Hamptons, D'Agostino is said to have met with one of his ex-girlfriends instead of attending co-star Jill Zarin's annual luncheon, leaving his wife to attend the event alone.

De Lesseps is reported to be "heartbroken" over the divorce and believes that D'Agostino may have been using her for her fame. Sources close to the star told the Daily Mail that D'Agostino wasn't capable of being in a monogamous relationship, and he isn't willing to give up his long-time bachelor lifestyle.
